On Sept. 17, the nation observes Constitution Day and Citizenship Day, as part of Constitution Week. The commemoration honors both the signing of the Constitution on Sept. 17, 1787, and an observance that began in 1940 as “I Am an American Day.”

Each year, USCIS celebrates this occasion with special naturalization ceremonies across the country. This year, we will welcome more than 36,000 new citizens in over 200 naturalization ceremonies between Sept. 17 and 23. A list of highlighted ceremonies is below.

We encourage you to share your ceremony experiences and photos via Twitter and other social media, using the hashtag #newUScitizen. You can also follow @USCIS on Twitter and Facebook.com/USCIS.
